You might have heard of the term escort probably from a friend or perhaps from random Internet videos or Googled articles. However, the ignorant public usually do not know the difference between them and prostitutes, when the actual difference is huge! Let our SG escort agency explain it to you.
There are obviously people who masquerade prostitutes as escorts and vice versa, but the truth is they are not the same.
They are indeed in the adult entertainment industry, just like nightclubs, bars, e.t.c. However, that is all. Other than that, there are lots of differences between both of them. Different countries may have different laws, and therefore slightly different definitions, but the following differences are true for that in Singapore.
With that said, let us take a look at some of the key differences.
Services provided (prostitutes):
Prostitutes provide sexual services to their clients. It is as simple as that. They are not paid to talk, entertain the client in any other form. In such an arrangement, it is illegal for the girl to take the money and not provide any sexual services, as that is exactly what she is paid for. She has to provide those services.
If you tried talking to prostitutes, which you can, you may find that most of them are lowly-educated, from neighboring countries and are usually low class. They are largely secondary or high school dropout equivalents, and have no substance besides their looks, perhaps.
Services provided (escorts):
They are paid for their companionship and time spent with their client. They are in other words, a pretend girlfriend – a very hot and beautiful pretend girlfriend. Imagine you walking down the street and noticing a really hot girl in Singapore. Sometimes you may imagine them being your girlfriend. That is exactly what is happening here. You can immediately buy that fantasy of having a beautiful Singaporean woman to become your girlfriend instantaneously. There is no need for courtship and competing with other men – simply pay and she will be your girlfriend for the number of hours that you engaged her for.
They are usually Diploma or University graduates or undergraduates, and are the typical beautiful, elegant women. Some of them may even be models or office ladies.
While prostitution is allowed in SG, public soliciting (includes over the Internet!), pimping, maintaining a brothel among some other activities are illegal. Therefore if you approach a ‘service provider’, you may be at legal risk if they get prosecuted. You may be asked for questioning in the event that if you are caught during a bust – because brothels are outlawed in the country.
Some of claimed that there are licensed brothels along Geylang. Whether this is true or not, we are not aware of it. However, you can make your own research on that, if you would like to patronize a prostitute along Singapore’s red light district areas.
They are perfectly legal as long as they do not solicit prostitution. If you noticed, those ‘news’ articles of them being caught are always caught for prostitution related charges. They are not charged for being a social escort. Being one is a perfectly legal job. Of course, they better have a citizenship or VISA which allows them to work legally here. Otherwise, they will also be liable to prosecution under a different law, which is Singapore’s manpower act. And because this is Singapore, you will probably be asked to give your verdict at the police station if you engage a foreigner’s services if the girl does not have a legal or valid work status in the country. Keep in mind there is no VISA for such providers.
If you want one, make sure to engage a local or permanent resident only.
When it comes to engaging prostitutes, you probably need to go for an incall, which basically means that you go the to the prostitute’s location. This is almost always in a shady area such as Geylang. Such places are usually frequented by lower income men, and imagine what would happen to your social credibility if someone caught you there! It will be downright embarrassing.
In fact, as a result of this, many men feel embarrassed to even go to Geylang to do something completely irrelevant to this such as eating the famous frog porridge or claypot rice just because they are in the vicinity! This is because if they truly went by themselves to do anything else at Geylang, other than visiting prostitutes, they may be wrongly accused too. This is due to Geylang’s ‘bad’ reputation. And if they are indeed visiting prostitutes at Geylang and got seen, that will be really embarrassing for a high SES local or foreigner business executive!
Just like meeting someone off Tinder, except that you are guaranteed to meet the girl you want, you can pick the location you want to meet the girl at. You can choose to meet in a public location, or in a private setting – this is how fast the chosen companion can travel to your area. As long as the girl is fine with you and the location, you are free to choose.
Here’s an advice for you.
Always use a company which do not sell or solicit sexual services if you want a pretty SG girl to be your girlfriend for the day or night. Otherwise, if you are looking for sexual services, you may want to head onto other articles online or elsewhere to look for legal brothels (not sure if they still do exist) in designated red light districts in Singapore such as Geylang.
